Chef Dessert Tartufo Truffle Dessert

We were suf­fi­ciently pleased with the Food Envy Tiramisu from Aldi we thought to try their Chef Dessert Tartufo Truffle Dessert, which is also made in Italy.

The truffle dessert con­sists of ‘cocoa sponge cake, chocol­ate sauce, cocoa mousse, cocoa dust­ing and chocol­ate drop­pings’.

We found this truffle dessert to be much too soft, creamy and dry at the same time. The cream was gen­er­ous while the sponge was dry without suf­fi­cient con­trast­ing tex­ture or the wel­come relief from an alco­hol­ic kick to cut through the heav­i­ness of the cream and the moisten the sponge. Textural and mouth­feel issues aside, the dessert delivered on its chocol­ate fla­vour, which was not too rich thank­fully.

This Chef Dessert Tartufo Truffle Dessert con­tained 450 g. It was pro­duced in Italy and pur­chased in Sydney, Australia in 2017.
